Dr Eamonn O'Keeffe highlights the role and importance of military music within British society during the Napoleonic Wars.

The Napoleonic Wars (1803-15) are often remembered for their larger-than-life military leaders, historic battles and the clashing of troops draped in red and blue.

Less frequently focused on is the role of military music during the conflict and how this was embodied in wider society.

In this talk, Dr Eamonn O'Keeffe will explore how military music was utilised by the armed forces and how wider British society viewed these performances.
